Laura Bush has pointed out in recent interviews for the dreaded Main Stream Media
that Iraq is being wrongly maligned by reporters. "The left wing media is telling you lies! Iraq is made out rainbows and cotton candy!"
Mrs. Bush then went on to say that she hopes for "more
officially sanctioned balanced coverage in the future." NewsBusters.org
wants to make sure that Brian Williams does not conflate his sources of information about violence in Iraq, and how dare you speak that way to the the First Lady:
"On Thursday’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams highlighted how, earlier in the day, First Lady Laura Bush 'placed the blame squarely on the news media' for why so few support the President on Iraq. But instead of addressing her contention about how 'there are a lot of good things that are happening that aren't covered and I think the drumbeat in the country from the media...is discouraging' as she hoped for 'more balanced coverage' in the future, Williams applied a non sequitur to dismiss her assessment of the news media. He noted how 'the recent report from the Iraq Study Group, however, specifically found that there has been significant under-reporting of the violence in Iraq.' But that’s about the accuracy of U.S. military data collection and categorization, not the accuracy of news media coverage of the situation in Iraq." NewsBusters.org
If the present plan of hiding behind his wife does not work out, President Bush has vowed to hide behind orphans and invalids.
